Hiring an Electrician?
Need Electrical Work Done? Did you know that only electrical contractors licensed by the Electrical Contractor Registration Agency of the Electrical Safety Authority (ECRA/ESA) are permitted to do electrical work in Ontario? It is illegal for electrical contractors (including electricians) to operate a business without an ECRA/ESA licence. Wiring is complicated and mistakes can be serious. A Licensed Electrical Contractor can get the job done right. Licensed Electrical Contractors are qualified, competent, and insured in accordance with the law, and understand the safety requirements associated with electrical installations. To confirm that the electrical contractor that you are planning to hire has an ECRA/ESA licence, ask for their licence number, and then call 1-877-ESA-SAFE (1-877-372-7233) or open the following link to find a Licensed Electrical Contractor in your area. If they are not listed on our website, they do not hold a valid EC Licence. https://findacontractor.esasafe.com/
